Police to concentrate on school zones

Ponca City Now - August 14, 2018 12:54 pm

With Ponca City Public Schools resuming classes on Thursday, police officers will be concentrating their efforts in the school zones and the cross walks near the schools.

The target of the competitive grant funding the Ponca City Police Department was awarded through the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office is to reduce aggressive driving and the patrol will be doing just that near the schools.

“With the new school year starting we encourage all drivers to be very careful as they get used to having the students walking to, from, and around the schools. We will also encourage all the students to pay very close attention. Over the next few weeks we will put an emphasis on school zone speeds, and safety during drop off/pick up times. Please help us make sure this new school year starts off safely”, says Ponca City Police Chief Don Bohon.
